On Feb. 13, 2017, we had our Easter Seals 2017 Kick Off. Thank you to the 42 Club members who braved the storm!

Message from our Campaign Chair, Peter MacDougall:

It is with enthusiasm that we invite you to take part in this year’s campaign. Thanks to the commitment and support of many generous donors, we raised more than $115,000 last year. This funding was used to assist organizations such as the PEI Council of People with Disabilities, Joyriders, Cerebral Palsy Association, PEI Association for Community Living (O’Leary Local, in partnership with Community Inclusions), Village des Sources l’Étoile Filante and Camp Gencheff, as well as programs supported through Rotary.  

Easter Seals is a joint initiative of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown, with support from Summerside and Montague. We are proud of the fact all funds raised by the campaign stay right here on PEI. The team of volunteers has been hard at work since September putting together the 2017 Easter Seals Campaign and we are excited as we move towards this year’s Campaign.

We have a wide array of fundraising and awareness activities planned for the year, from community events to hockey and basketball games, a corporate campaign where businesses across the Island lend support, our annual Tim Horton’s Ambassador School Tour and our Paper Egg campaign in partnership with Lawtons Drugs.  We thank you for your past support and encourage you to continue to donate and attend Easter Seals events, to help Islanders with disabilities.

We would also like to thank our amazing Ambassador, Cameron Gordon. His enthusiasm, positive attitude and desire to help out will certainly contribute to our success in this year’s campaign.  Please help us support his efforts to raise funds for Easter Seals by visiting https://eastersealspei.org and thank you to the 20 Rotarians who have already contributed $100 to the 2017 Campaign!
